Partnered in both business and family, Maya and Joyce Romanoff built an American institution that produces the most beautiful and creative surfacing materials. Joyce has been instrumental in the development of many of Maya Romanoff’s most innovative collections: Mother of Pearl, hand-inlaid tiles of genuine seashell; Ajiro, micro-thin paulownia wood veneer; and Beadazzled Flexible Glass Bead Wallcovering, the first of its kind and entirely fabricated by hand in Maya Romanoff’s Chicago studio.
In 2010, Joyce received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Aid to Artisans for her work supporting artisans and bringing their crafts to the forefront in interior design. In 2012, Joyce & Maya were awarded The Museum of Arts and Design’s 2012 Visionaries Lifetime Award for their long-standing commitment to innovative wallcovering design and surfacing materials. Since Maya’s passing in 2014, Joyce has served as CEO, along with Maya & Joyce’s second generation, to steer the company into the future. With her aesthetic sophistication, technical knowledge and prodigious energy, Joyce has worked tirelessly to make the “art of everyday” scalable for global distribution.
“Our work engages timeless ideas and elegant materials to make everything we design beautiful to the touch and innately desirable.”
